Intercultural Communication Reviews


"The theoretical discussions are excellent. The Scollons provide a unique combination of all the essential topics in cross-cultural communication, a sophisticated and original theoretical framework, and an unusually well-organized and concise presentation of the material. The book is extremely well written: it is clear and full of telling examples. I can't imagine a better treatment of the topic." Deborah Tannen, Professor of Linguistics, Georgetown University "The Scollons mix contemporary linguistic anthropology with modern concerns over intercultural communication and forge a creative, important blend. Their lively and accessible approach will enlighten anyone who lives and works in our culturally diverse world." Michael Agar, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland
